As a researcher you will already be equipped with the skills needed to perform research within your discipline. If you are based in a university, you will also probably benefit from institutional research support and advice to help you conduct your research. Doing inter- and transdisciplinary research requires additional “meta-skills” such as leadership, communication, negotiation and integration.
At the heart of inter- and transdisciplinary expertise lies the ability to integrate knowledge, not just across different disciplines but across institutional boundaries to enable researchers to forge working relationships with outside of academia.
